We are honored to be mentioned in this article alongside a young local advocate who is surviving and thriving and giving back by building a group for LGBTQ+ youth in Belfair. Queer and trans youth deserve respect, safety, acceptance, and celebration. They are our leaders, and our mission at Q Youth Resources is to empower and uplift these youth. Also!

May 18, 2018 To our Q Center parents, caregivers, and family, It has come to QYR leadership’s attention that a youth attended drop-in last week while under the influence of THC edibles.
